Shooting Yourself Handheld
I think Knoptop has found a new level of microbudget filmmaking. While the rest of us might run solo operations using a camera fixed on a tripod, Dave has figured out how to get a handheld shot of himself without a camera operator. Whenever I've seen this before it's always been a self-aware tracking shot (the subject speaking into the camera), what they call a 'walk and talk' in the news biz. Dave's version is more traditional cinema--he acts like the camera isn't there, all while he's running it.
